Too gamey for my taste. I used to do a lot of hunting back in Michigan with my uncles. I no longer choose to eat it for a healthier diet. One thing that should be pointed out, alot of the reason people hunt to begin with is to keep the populations of said animals low. Otherwise they will all starve when their food source is depleted. Hunters usually know the terrain and populace of animals and only take down the older animals.

It comes in handy when you're low on cash and can't afford to go spend as much on food as it costs now.
I wasn't implying that you kill for the hell of it, nor am I judging you. I have plenty of faults to correct in myself before I start worrying about correcting what I perceive are faults in others.

I don't know any hunters and am curious to understand the mindset of those who do. You mention you do it for food, but is there a thrill in it too? I've never fired a weapon, but hear it's quite a rush?

OH Okay. I'm glad you cleared that up, I wasn't sure but I wasn't assuming really just pointing it out haha. There is a thrill in hunting. Especially bow hunting, which I do as well. Your adrenalin is rushing the entire time.

This too. More so during things like buck season being you can tell the age a lot easier than you can on other animals or, in deer, does. But if you are in experienced hunter you can tell by their coloring, build, etc.

My fault. I worded it like a loaded question.

Is it one of those fancy bows like they use at the Olympic games and archery tournaments?

Here's what it looks like haha. (Excuse that it's a bad picture. It was taken about a year ago while I was sighting it in to get it on target.) Along with one of the guns I use for muzzleloader season. (Which was taken this year, just a few weeks ago actually.)

Oh wow. That's a bow and a half. Looks like the bow from the videogame Turok. I want one. Not to kill animals. But just to use on targets. Very nice.

They're fun to use really. They have their downsides though such as if you snap your arm on release, that'll hurt for a good while.

Yeah, I imagine there's a hell of a lot of energy stored in those things under tension.

I've never subscribed to that belief. I've found better company, compassion, and happiness in animals than humans (most of the time).

I grew up in the midwest and was disgusted by most of the people around me for the way they treated wildlife, for the grotesque redneck things they'd do. How anyone could look at another species and find it to be of less worth than humans is completely beyond me.

(then again I pretty much hate the "country boy/country girl" lifestyle - it just seems so classless, barbaric, even a little stupid.)
